Lost in a stream 'tween the wake and the dream I feel Visions appear Like a dream in my sleep turns real An energy spread through the air Soon I dread it observes me With an evil intent To my psychic extent this presence choke me Frozen air, eyes I feel stare Faceless apparitions Freeze in fear, spectres drawn near Swarming with precision x2 Approaching a ghost A shade be my host at my side From a mind state unknown, Where the door to its home open wide Unable to wake From this state I can't break apart This threat it create When it eagerly make panic start They have always been here In a spectrum of fear far beyond Swarming our world Since the earth started turning around At this spectrum I glance Through "The Obsidian Sense" opened wide Making me realize There is no use to try to hide Frozen air, eyes I feel stare Faceless apparitions Freeze in fear, spectres drawn near Swarming with precision x2

Licking his lips, a coated tongue Breath of insanity, deep in his lung Feverish eyes, guttural grunts Brains, blood, bones, flesh, skin and guts (x2) Waiting in the cellar, or around any corner Or in your home, his mouth full of foam (x2) Anthropophagus, sinks his teeth into human flesh Anthropophagus, grinds his victims into mash Anthropophagus, wants to try out something new Anthropophagus, that's why in his dreams he's dreaming of you! Nothing is sacred in his mind Somewhere in a cave he has built a shrine Collecting the skulls of his delicious meals Praying to them with deranged, horny squeals Anthropophagus (x4) Anthropophagus, sinks his teeth into human flesh Anthropophagus, grinds his victims into mash Anthropophagus, wants to try out something new Anthropophagus, that's why in his dreams he's dreaming of you!

From distant shores she moves with the wind On rivers red, through poisoned streams A plague angel float the seas Mother Pestilence We found comfort in her In her black, withering embrace We felt the warmth in her In her fever, the illness in her face We found comfort in her In her black, withering embrace We felt the warmth in her In her fever, the illness in her face With ill intent she greets us well From home to home to fill the tombs She poured the illness into our wounds Mother Pestilence Seed to sow and life to reap Bodies wither and burn from the inside Seed is sown and life is reaped As she moves with the furious winds Seed to sow and life to reap Bodies wither and burn from the inside Seed is sown and life is reaped As she moves with the furious winds When skin is touched by her embrace And the winds she whispered found the trace Into our pores Within our lungs We become her grey silent tongue From distant shores she moves with the wind On rivers red, through poisoned streams A plague angel float the seas Mother Pestilence We found comfort in her In her black, withering embrace We felt the warmth in her In her fever, the illness in her face We found comfort in her In her black, withering embrace We felt the warmth in her In her fever, the illness in her face

Such tragic event A victim clings to survival Embraced by the reaper A caress so warm the flesh burns I witness in horror This sight of disaster before me Igniting panic emotions Distorting what I feel Are my emotions confused by the shock I endured? As the fear and concern in my mind soon getting blurred By a new sensational feeling, more frightful than mine I enter the dying, sharing his body and mind Activate transmission sequence Connection applied I feel how his agony, fears And despair intertwine A link of telepathy In mind and body, has opened Sharing his mortal fear And doubt to survive I sense the stage of death herein! Are you taking me with you am I dying as well? Are we already leaving this weak human shell? Signal lost Grains of life shall count the cost Signal lost Mind to ashes, skin to dust x2 The connection’s getting weaker White noise flashes, turning bleaker Free me from this intuition Life fades out – lost transmission

Plans of power, plans of greed Woven like a spider’s web Hiding, lurking, ready for battle Brainless humans, feeble cattle Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action Plans of power, plans of greed Woven like a spider’s web Hiding, lurking, ready for battle Brainless humans, feeble cattle Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action Now it is time to show the world How an alien master race would run this planet Suddenly they face the barrel of a gun Cause one thing is certain: Derek’s don’t run! Just you wait ‘til I get my chainsaw Then I will be reborn again ‘cause Derek’s don’t run! Plans of power, plans of greed Woven like a spider’s web Hiding, lurking, ready for battle Brainless humans, feeble cattle Derek’s don’t run! Derek’s don’t run! Derek’s don’t run!

Hands folded - into desperation Eyes reached up - to seek salvation A dreamlike refuge - in tragic times In need of comfort - when trust in man dies Hands folded - into desperation Eyes reached up - to seek salvation A dreamlike refuge - in tragic times In need of comfort - when trust in man dies There is a silence here - deafening the trust A distress call with no response Answers never came As candles burning out Like the faith of the believer now seems lost Illusive, intrusive silence in these halls The only sound in here are your desperate calls Rejoice! Your maker has abandoned you! Rejoice! Rejoice! Your maker has abandoned you! Rejoice! Hands parted - in desperation Eyes shut - blind from salvation A silent refuge - a mirage of mind A believer abandoned When trust in god dies

You! You invited me! You opened the gate and let me in A presence watching you - unseen A presence touching you - so numb A presence calling you - unheard A presence becomes you... I! I coiled around your flesh I opened your wounds and reached in Stare in awe into the polished glass A stranger staring back You are replaced, your existence expired As I smother your soul from within Transformation! - No shelter from what's already inside Transformation! - Into your being, unseen I slide Transformation! - No shelter from what's already inside Transformation! - Into your being, unseen I slide Stare in awe into the polished glass A stranger staring back You are replaced, your existence expired As I smother your soul from within Becoming the unspeakable Becoming the unspeakable The chanting of prayers fades in a futile echo The holy water dries up with no effect I exist beyond the borders of your false beliefs The face they knew will not be seen again You! You invited me! You opened the gate and let me in

The night screams like a storm In the vortex of your soul It's digging like a worm Into your mind... like a pole (x2) Countin' the hours waiting Writhing in horror the darkness Infinite daylight no mercy Thoughts jubilant rotating (Repeat first verse) (Repeat second verse) The brain is spinning The nightmares winning Forever laughing The minutes clicking The clock is ticking In slow motion (x2) A tortured haunted sanity waits for the final test It's begging for forgiveness, it's begging for some rest (x2) (Repeat fourth verse) (Repeat third verse) The morbid angels of your soul await the final call And in the darkness of the night they wait for you to fall

Blood is dripping from the leaves Bones are lying all around (The) scene will make your blood freeze Before you end up dead on the ground (x2) Naked and slaughtered, ripped and torn Shrieks and laughter, madness and scorn (x2) The land of thousand corpses, the land of no return A world of teeth and knives, a world where you will burn Naked and slaughtered, ripped and torn Shrieks and laughter, madness and scorn (x2) The land of thousand corpses, the land of no return A world of teeth and knives, a world where you will burn Nackt und zerfleischt! (x4) Blood is dripping from the leaves Bones are lying all around (The) scene will make your blood freeze Before you end up dead on the ground Nackt und zerfleischt! (x4)

Vacant, psychopathic Life must take life In the interest of life itself Primitive, endurable The one to inherit the earth Will not be men They swarm the earth The legion of flies and insects Long before the traces of man They swarm the earth The legion of flies and insects Unnoticed and unloved they learn of life: To inherit and dispearse They breed By millions underneath A harvest colony The insects of disease Set free A swarm of mastery One thing in mind - to feed This ancient tyranny No face to smile with Or portray what hides beneath Like a mask without expression to maintain Formed by hunger and the instinct to survive The first one to apprear Will be the last one to remain They swarm the earth The legion of flies and insects Long before the traces of man They swarm the earth The legion of flies and insects Unnoticed and unloved they learn of life: To inherit and dispearse Distinctive need for expansion Nurtured by the winds of heavens above Like a cloud contain this virus Infecting by the numbers The entire face of the globe In the wake of earthquake and flood Will rivers run red of human blood And man itself will be extinct While insects crawl with vile instincts Hunger, survival, the meaning of life A war eternal as the earth was created Not by the gentle caress of love But by the brutal violence of rape
